Gold Demand Trends Q2 2017

Published 3rd August 2017

Q2 gold demand of 953.4t was 10% lower than 2016, while H1 demand slowed 14% to 2,003.8t.  Year-on-year comparisons suffer due to the record ETF inflows in 2016: demand from this sector slowed dramatically after last year’s H1 surge. Net central bank purchases of 176.7t were also slightly lower in the first half (-3%). Bar and coin investment was contrastingly positive, as was jewellery demand, although the latter remains weak in a long-term context. Technology demand also made modest gains.

After an exceptional 2013, gold demand made a robust start to 2014 - virtually unchanged year-on-year at 1,074.5 tonnes. Jewellery demand gained moderately, largely due to the environment of lower gold prices compared with Q1 2013 and seasonal factors in many markets. Divergence was seen within the investment space: net ETFs flows were zero, compared with 177t of outflows in Q1 2013, while bar and coin investment unsurprisingly fell far below the record Q1 levels of demand seen a year ago. Central banks continued to purchase gold for its diversification and risk management properties.

Gold demand of 3,756.1 tonnes in 2013 was worth US$170.4bn. Consumers generated exceptional levels of demand, with jewellery at its highest since the onset of the financial crisis in 2008 and investment in small bars and coins hitting a record high. This was in contrast to large-scale outflows from ETFs, due to a number tactical western investors liquidating their positions as US economic sentiment improved. Central banks made healthy purchases of 368.6 tonnes, the fourth consecutive year of positive demand. The net result was a 15% decline in overall gold demand from 2012.

The exceptions were gold-backed ETFs, which had net outflows of 119t this quarter, compared to 402t in Q2 2013, and India where the result of government intervention in the Indian gold market was to reduce demand by 71t compared with Q3 2012. Central banks continued to add gold to reserves, but at a slower rate.

During the tumultuous quarter, jewellery demand grew significantly to reach multi-year highs, while record demand for gold bars and coins was offset by well-documented ETF outflows. Central bank demand slowed in Q2, yet remained within the broad 70-160 tonne range and marked ten consecutive quarters of purchases. A marked decline in the supply of recycled gold resulted in a 6% decline in total gold supply to 1025.5 tonnes.
